SL suffers setback. Gunaratne ruled out of Nidahas Trophy

Bengaluru, February 23: Asela Gunaratne has suffered yet another setback as a rotator cuff injury ruled him out of the Nidahas Trophy.

The triangular Twenty20 International tournament involving Bangladesh and India will be played from March 6 to March 18 to mark the 70th anniversary of Sri Lanka's independence.

Gunaratne, the 32-year-old all-rounder, sustained the injury during a team fielding session during the recent tour of Bangladesh, but played in all of Sri Lanka's fixtures in the triangular one-day international series, also involving Zimbabwe.

The tournament, which Sri Lanka won, was played on January 27, and upon returning home, he played a first-class match for Sri Lanka Army against Colombo Cricket Club in early February.

But Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) confirmed that the injury was more serious than initially thought.

"The status of his injury is diagnosed as a Grade II rotator cuff strain with contusion," SLC announced, adding that Gunaratne would undergo rehabilitation work at the Board's High Performance Center.
